White Beetroot

I appear to have grown a white "Boltardy" beetroot. The others are all a normal colour. Is this common? I have not eaten it yet in case I have grown a rarity!

    LOL muddy feet. I don't know, but what are you going to do with it if it is rare? It will have to be eaten at some point surely. image

  • Sell the seeds to highest bidder!

    You can buy White beetroot seeds. Have grown them, but find them far too sweet for our taste.

    They are a bit weird as they taste like beetroot - but white.  Also come in yellow!

  • Thank you for your replies. Will let you know how it tastes.

  • I got two white ones at the weekend from my boltardy sowing.. boiled them up and if you closed your eyes you could not tell the difference. Got my seed from T&M maybe the batch got contaminated with white ones.. could tell it was not going to be purple though as the leaves had no red veins either.

  • got the same thing from the same seeds

  • hi everbody this is my first plea nice to belong image
